Hire a car Sylt: Where can the hired car be parked?

Beach in Sylt

Due to its popularity and crowds, Sylt residents often struggle with crowded parking lots. Accordingly, parking on Sylt can be expensive if not known how. Therefore, it is cheaper to avoid parking at the roadside. Since March 2017, the parking fees were increased in Westerland at parking ticket machines for roadside parking. Therefore, it is important to avoid these parking places and park in official parking lots and parking garages. The fees are significantly lower. Outside the city, you will find plenty of parking at popular hot spots.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

Whether you need to pay a security deposit depends on the type of insurance you choose and your rental agency. In most cases, you will be expected to pay a security deposit. The amount of the deposit also depends on several factors. Some providers generally charge first-time customers a deposit, even if "full coverage with no deductible" is chosen. Others charge higher deposits for higher-value car types. If there are no complications during the rental period, the deposit is returned to the credit card. Most of the time, the credit card holder must also be the driver, which is why you should bring a credit card with your name and sufficient coverage.

Hired car Sylt: refuelling

Fueling on Sylt is generally not a problem. Although the supply of gas stations is not really abundant, the island is small enough to to find a gas station even with an almost empty tank. Unfortunately, petrol and diesel prices on Sylt are somewhat higher than on the mainland. If you are on the island for a longer time, it may well be worthwhile to fill up the canister on a day with cheaper petrol prices.

Who can I contact in an emergency?

On Germany's roads, the ADAC is an excellent contact when it comes to minor breakdowns or problems. If your insurance package includes an emergency service, you can contact your rental agency directly. In case of accidents, of course, the police must be called. In case of injuries, you should notify the local emergency service and call an ambulance.
